    😊 Hello Salam đŸ‘‹đŸœ
    My name is Benjamin, since 2016 I restore a former Dar (traditional house) in the Medina of Fez in Morocco.
    Fez is a millennial city listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and it is also the largest city in the world without a car!
    The Dar is very quiet and is located in a popular area in the heart of the medina. There are many traditional crafts: leather, copper, weaving, wood carving, ceramics, etc.
    The idea of ​​our project, initiated with the help of family, neighborhood and friends, is to transform the Dar into an associative space of encounters and artistic creation, for solidarity project leaders and artists from all walks of life in an intercultural dynamic.
    It is indeed a solidarity project where everyone can contribute to the work for the development of a transversal and participative governance. But that's for later, first we need help to finalize the restoration!
    The project has no financial support, all funds come from donations and personal funding.


    Hello, Salam,
    Je m’appelle Benjamin, depuis 2016 je restaure un ancienne Dar (maison traditionnelle) dans la MĂ©dina de Fez au Maroc.
    Fez est un ville millĂ©naire classĂ©e au patrimoine mondial de l’UNESCO et c’est aussi la plus grande ville au monde sans voiture !
    Le Dar et trĂšs calme et ce situe dans un quartier populaire en pleins cƓur de la mĂ©dia, on y trouve beaucoup d’artisanat traditionnel : le cuir, le cuivre, le tissage, la sculpture sur bois, cĂ©ramique, etc.
    L’idĂ©e du projet initiĂ© avec l’aide de la famille, le quartier et les amis, consiste Ă  transformer le Dar en un espace associatif de rencontres et de crĂ©ation artistique pour des porteurs de projets solidaires et des artites de tout horizon dans une dynamique inter-culturel.
    Il s’agit bien d’un projet solidaire ou chacun peut apporter ça pierre Ă  l’ouvrage pour le dĂ©veloppement d’une gouvernance transversal et participative. Mais ça, c’est pour plus tard, avant nous avons besoin d’aide pour finaliser la fin de la restauration !
    Le projet de bĂ©nĂ©ficie d’aucun soutien financement, tout les fond viennent de donations et de fonds personnel.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Yes! This is the most important point. Indeed we are located in the heart of a very lively district where we are constantly making new encounters. The locals are particularly curious and are very interested in the project in addition to being often starting for new experiences, professional or personal. Here, we disconnect from our routines and we reappropriate our time, relearning, among others, to contemplate what surrounds us.
    For the last 3 years, all the people who came to participate in the projects have left, promising themselves to return one day to Fez. Not only is cultural enrichment great, but so are friendships!

    Yes ! C’est bien le point le plus important. En effet nous et situĂ© en plein cƓur d’un quartier trĂšs vivant oĂč l’on fait sans cesse de nouvelles rencontres. Les locaux sont particuliĂšrement curieux et s’intĂ©ressent beaucoup au projet en plus d’ĂȘtre souvent partants pour de nouvelles expĂ©riences, professionnelles ou personnelles. Ici, on se dĂ©connecte de nos routines et on se rĂ©approprie notre temps, en rĂ©apprenant, entre autres, Ă  contempler ce qui nous entoure.
    Depuis 3 ans, toutes les personnes qui sont venues participer aux projets sont reparties en se promettent de revenir un jour Ă  FĂšs. Non seulement l’enrichissement culturel y est grand, mais les amitiĂ©s aussi !
